First introduced in the 1970's, Pente is a contemporary strategy game based upon several closely related games that have been popular in Asia for centuries. Pente (meaning "five" in Greek) combines the best elements of all three - the simplicity of Go-Moku, the flashy tactics of Ninuki-Renju, and the profound strategy of Go. All of these games can also be played on the Pente board.
The object of Pente is simple - a players wins by placing five stones in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) or by capturing 5 pairs of an opponent's stones.
